for this kind of thing. our cnn legal analyst, paul callan, tells us a-rod's main worry would be a suspension from the baseball commissioner and that could affect his contract with the yankees. >> obviously if he's not showing up to play baseball because of a suspension, they would have certain rights under the contract then to pay him, well, nothing or considerabliless money. but it gets complicated because of the multiple agreements in question. >> reporter: and of course we're a long way off from that. no idea where major league baseball's investigation is heading. miguel? >> susan candiotti, thank you very much. >>> the baltimore ravens and the san francisco 49ers battle it out tomorrow at the super bowl. so what do their quarterbacks need to do to get that coveted ring? we'll ask legendary nfl star, who's already had one, joe theismann. he joins us live. >>> spring temperatures one day, freezing cold the next. what's behind the wacky weather? we'll find out. >>> and a 7-year-old boy is handcuffed by police after being accused of stealing from a classmate. the family is outraged and want

. to the feds have a case? paul callan, how important is it that the feds are jumping in? >> this is very, very big. what it indicates is the federal government, justice department, have faith there's a legitimate suit here. this false claims act was started in the civil war when the u.s. government was being defrauded by contractors and it said, basically, if you're a worker and you see fraud and you start a lawsuit, we're going to reward you with 15% to 30% of what you recover. this could be a huge lawsuit, $100 million lawsuit, a lot of money at stake for the government and floyd landis, armstrong's teammate. >> let me ask you about the law and math. here's a statement from armstrong's attorney. lance and his representatives worked constructively with federal lawyers to resolve this case fairly. those talks failed because we disagree whether the postal service was damaged. the postal service's own studies show the service benefited tremendously from sponsorship, we know the postal service put in about $31 million, so they're $70 million to the good. does that make a difference legally? >> it
